The Centurions was out of print for a long time. It was one of the books I searched for in used shops. I wanted to re-publish it on Greenside but couldn't find the rights holder. Penguin beat me to it. It's a classic of counter-insurgency and finally I get to read it. I listened to On Killing at the gym and running and am reading On Combat (it's the same thing isn't it- reading and listening?). Grossman is such a good writer- clear, clever, funny. Welcome Thieves was written by my friend Sean. I like it that all my writer friends are more successful than me. I don't know why. I just do. And I'm learning the myths of my people. Writing a book set in Ballard motivated me to do this.
